Group Name: Fife House – Community Programs for People with HIV/AIDS
Description: Fife House is an innovative, client-focused provider of secure and supportive affordable housing and services to people living with HIV/AIDS in the Greater Toronto Area.
Fife House delivers services which are focused on enhancing quality of life, building on individual strengths and promoting independence – recognizing that access to secure and affordable housing is a key determinant for the health and well-being of people living with HIV/AIDS.
The Community Programs Department was created to address isolation and marginalization of men, women and families living with HIV/AIDS. The program promotes social integration, health and well being, which help in developing a sense of belonging and community among residents and within the larger community. The staff team oversees the Wellness Centre at our Sherbourne site which provides a variety of services offered by professionals free of charge. Alternative therapies (touch therapy, polarity therapy, naturopathy, reflexology etc.) are very popular with people living with HIV/AIDS and the team strive to provide a variety of opportunities for residents and clients in all programs.
Social/Recreational Programs provide access to a range of activities, services and outlets for residents/clients including: congregate dining, outings, yoga, expressive arts, games night and a gardening club.
